Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions.
Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.
When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe. Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.

You are right about Iceland and the bar code.
I took a copy of the photo and put it through a barcode reader.

It's obvious to anyone that it is a Fox's glacier mint which is why it has a Polar Bear on the top.
